Jesus Married? Papyrus Gives Clue–But What Jesus?

It seems like every time a so-called ‘biblical discovery’ is unearthed, secular and non-secular types get all in a tizzy–those for and those against, and some that just sit on the fence waiting for more evidence of whatever it is that someone is trying to prove.  Such is the the case of the newly discovered papyrus written in Coptic (ancient Egyptian) language which reads in part, ‘Jesus said to them, my wife.’

Now I make no bones about my faith, and anybody that knows me knows that. I believe in God in three persons: Father, Son (Christ), and Holy Spirit. I’ve always believed and I always will. I celebrate Christmas with Jesus in mind, and the same at Easter as we celebrate his resurrection. I do believe in a heaven and hell, and I’ll also tell you that of all the sinners I am chief. And when it comes to going to heaven, I’ll be happy being the last one in and closing the door behind me. With that said, I’ll tell you that I’ve read the bible a few times and there’s nothing there that says Jesus had a wife. I believe every word of the bible.

The main reason I’m not jumping up and down on this new discovery is because the name Jesus was incredibly common back in those days. Jesus comes from the Hebrew name Yeshua…pretty common. And did you know that archeologists have unearthed at least 70 tombs with the name Jesus (Yeshua) attached to it?

You can believe what you want, but I for one won’t hinge my faith on anything tangible here on earth–Holy Grail, Shroud of Turin,  Coptic Papyrus, Jesus’ image in a slice of burnt toast, etc.

The book of Hebrews 11:1 defines faith in this manner, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for, and assurance of what we do not see.” If God wants me to see it and believe, he’ll make it happen and there won’t be any mistaking it.

Have a blessed day!
